I was compensated by Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Products Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. and The Motherhood as part of my participation in the LISTERINE® 21-Day Challenge. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own.
Have you heard about the LISTERINE® 21-Day Challenge? LISTERINE wants to help you improve your oral health, as well as help you reach more healthy habit goals this year, and they're kicking it off with encouragement at Listerine.com/21DayChallenge. Check out all the fun goodies they sent me to help start my own 21-Day Challenge! Having fun new products is a great motivation. You can find everything you'll need for the challenge at Walgreens. I know I'll be able to replenish my stock there when I run out. (With all these kiddos and Jamie participating too, I'm going to run out fast!) I'm especially looking forward to trying out the whitening toothpaste as all this sweet tea I've been sipping on the past year doesn't make for the whitest teeth in the South!
The whole family is getting excited about trying out our new products and participating in the challenge. Growing up, I brushed and flossed, but mouthwash was not a part of my routine. Therefore, it's been difficult to start that habit with my own kids. I think this bottle of Disney's FROZEN rinse is going to be plenty of motivation for this little girl!
LISTERINE antiseptic is the most dentist-recommended brand in the world of antimicrobial mouthwash and it's stamped with the American Dental Association's seal of acceptance. When you use LISTERINE for 30 seconds, twice a day, you can get up to 5 times healthier gums in 2 weeks, and you'll be reaching all those places that brushing and flossing can't reach.
As a mom, I feel it's my responsibility to make sure the kids have the instruction and resources they need to take care of their oral health. Oral disease is the most common chronic childhood illness in the U.S. with some kids experiencing such severe pain that they can't eat, sleep, or learn well, and more than half of American adults have some form of gum disease---many without even knowing it. I don't want this legacy for my kids, but it's not enough to just brush and floss. Brushing and flossing misses 75% of your mouth, but rinsing with an antiseptic mouthwash twice a day reaches pretty much all of it.
Lynzie is also looking forward to experimenting with the whitening toothpaste. She's tried other brands and hasn't been super thrilled with the results. I think a full routine of brushing, flossing, and rinsing is going to give her the brighter smile she's looking for.
